Adding an outdoor living space to your home — such as an elevated deck, covered deck or screened porch — is a popular trend in today’s market.

A comfortable outdoor space is an attractive, practical and economical way to add square footage to your home now, with the benefit of a high return-on-investment later.

When designing an elevated outdoor structure, the space should ‘jive’ with your home and surroundings.  And when constructing the project, your choice of building materials will influence aesthetics, budget and upkeep requirements.  Both of these aspects — design and materials — should be a good fit for your lifestyle.

Wood Decks and Porches:  No product is exactly like wood, except real wood.  It’s durable and affordable, having proven structural value for years.  Beautiful outdoor spaces designed and built using wood will be guaranteed a long life with proper cleaning and resealing.

Wood decks and porches are a popular choice for St. Louis homeowners including hardwoods such as Ipe or Tigerwood as well as pressure treated lumber or cedar.

Composite Decks and Porches:  Composites are manufactured from recycled woods/plastics and considered environmentally friendly and desirable.

An experienced contractor will have a portfolio that includes a wide array of successful projects using a variety of materials such as TimberTech, Fiberon, AZEK, Trex, EverGrain … just to name a few.

Vinyl Decks and Porches:  Vinyl products have had a ‘pioneering impact’ on the entire outdoor living industry.  Vinyl is high in quality, durable, eco-friendly and requires very little maintenance.
